Akhil is not a small person too in terms of background in the Industry. He is friendly with every star and we can see that by how they pamper him and even encourage him on stage in public.
Still his films Hello and Mr. Majnu which for any other hero could have been above average grossers or marginal hits lost good chunk of money.
The mystery seems to have only one solution that is his debut film, Akhil. The movie took a grand opening with Rs. 10 crores first day and Akhil could even appear as brand ambassador for big National brands before debuting on-screen.
His acting in the movie and the story seems to have developed so much negativity towards him that people need a blockbuster from him to really appreciate his movie and watch it.
Even the kind of statements prior to Akhil made by his co-stars and himself, seem to be adding to all the negative vibes. Anyways, the actor needs a big director for his next project to at least put up good openings and strike some box office gold!
